During tbeweek tho exeoutive
flnanr committee will bold a meet
ing. Tb committee, So fur as al
ready named, is enthuslnBtlc over the
outlook. It Is one of the duties of
this commlt(ee to raise the neces
sary funds for the promotion of the
scheme, and 11 s tnt' understanding
that by next Sunday all if tho prin
cipal work with regard td financing
the movement will have been put In
tangible shape. With Mr. Fuqua
it i ho bead of the movement, with
I 1 i' CsnliApn's t- fi Tin I . Atl lll,nnl
douafion of ranh and his offer of a
freo lease for five years, and other
men equally enthusiastic, the out
look could not be more promising
than at preaeut. The committee
named today, and headed by: the
gontlemen already mentioned, will
have a report comprehensive and full
of lntereBtlng detail for a gathering
being advertised for Sunday after
noon. Mass Meeting Sunday.
For Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock,
It la announced that a mass meeting
will be held or boys, their parents
and all other persons interested,
which the promoters hope will
ecllpse anything of Its kind ever seen
In Amarillo. The meeting will be
held In the First Bapthu church and
will be presided over by those in
present authority of the movement.
Dr Martin will spend the remaind
er of the week with the boys and
with their parents, teachers, pastors
and guardians. She was delighted
with the turn of affairs shown by
the meeting last evening.
The boys during this week will be
taught songs and yells, and the en
thusiasm manifest by the olders will
be Infused among the Juniors, and
today, as a starter, Is expected to
make possible a demonstration that
will mean much toward suppression
of the cigarette habit among Ama
rillo lads, and for tho strengthening
of character, aiding them to become
strong men la the community.
The pastors of the churches took
heartily to the plan, and while none
of trem will likely bo on the execu
tive board, yet tftty will be willing
to give their services in any ca
pacity. '
Just for Hoys.
Tho organization Is not under the
guidance of any particular church
society. It la one for the boys an
strives above all else to awaken the
spark of self reliance, self dignity
and Independence In tho nature of
tho lads. The entire scheme hinges
upon tho worth that a boy attaches
to his word and his own personal
The demonstration now on foot for
Sunday, will carry with It features
unique ' and Interesting, but yet to
he made public. It Is the Intention
to bring all e'.iglbles Into line re
gardless of social station. The mor
al, and those more fortunately en
vironed, are to Join in an effort to
reclaim and sustain those of differ
ent habits, and whose surronndings
are not all that could be desired. It
is to be a campaign of the boys
mothers of the city t become such
characters as men nhould be.
The meeting for Sunday afternoon
Is expected to fill to Its utmost ca
pacity the. Baptist church. The de
tails of the meeting are being ar
ranged. Tho boys are being (old of
the worth of tbe enterprise. Parents
and teachers are bolng acquainted
with its workings. A number of
mothers have voiced their aproval of
the work, and success seems certain.
Dr. Martin Outlines Work.
That a definite Idea may be had
regarding this work among tho youth
Dr. Martin was asked to outline It.
She stated; "The work Is one for the
prevention and cure of evils among
boys between the ft69S of nine and
twenty-one years. It is proposi
tion long past the experimental
stage, and has been gloriously and
successfully in operation for a num
ber of years. We base the opera
tions of the organization on a fight
ugalnst perhaps the n'0t. pernicious
and all destroying practice among
tho young-r-the cigarette habit.
From thl8 w hulld characters that
are manly and true, characters that
are honor, not only to themselves
but to their, parents and the com
munities in which they live.
"It Is scarcely necessary that I say
tbe work Is one whose Influence upon
tbe physical and mental Ufa of the
coming generations will be measure
less In its scope far good, realizing
that the boys aed girls of the pres
ent day are the fathers and the moth
ers of tomorrow. We propose to
erect for tho boys and assist them
to maintain a home for their society,
the Yung Men's Business club. In
this club or home they are to have
gymnastics under tbe Instruction and
guidance of a capable director, one
such having promised three months'
free services as a donation to the
work. They will have baths of dif
ferent kinds and such games as will
prove stimulating to their mentality
and to the developing of tbe muscles.
It is the aim and the result of tbe
Institutions to give to tbe member
ship healthy minds and bodies, ef
fected by surrounding them with
healthful influences and conditions
In both departments.
"The boys, under tho direction of
the executive committee, are allowed
to manage their own affairs. A sec
retary may be selected from among
their number, preferably from among
the high school students. A treas
urer may be had from the same
source. They are permitted to give
honorary membership to their elders,
at such a fee as may be determined
adequate to meet the demands of
the institution. They will have the
advice of the committee, but will be
expocted to attend to their part f
the business of the enterprise.
"After the charter members shall
have passed the ge Hotlt they will
by operation of their by-laws become
honorary members.
"Heading rooms, furnished with
literature good for boys and good
for men, will bo supplied. Rest
and lounging rooms,' with an audi
torium suited for medical end re
ligious lectures, will be provided. It
is probable that no initiation fee
from the ellglbles will be required,
and it is also probable that tbe hon
orary membership fees will be suf
ficient, In connection with the enter
tainments and other things of a
similar character offered by the boys
to defray all legitimate expenses of
the club. These, however, are mat
ters that are to be worked out later
under the direction of the committer
by the .boys.
"Tbe scheme, as I have said be
fore, Is one that has been fully
demonstrated to the entire satisfac
tion of even the most skeptical, and
the results hav0 proved a blessing,
not only to the present generation,
but will be sa far reaching that none
now living will bo permitted to know
the full extent of the good accom
plished. To Purchase a Lot,
A vote of thanks was extended to
II. B. Sanborn for bis kindly offer
of a free lease of five yeorg on a
valuable lot, and for his offer of a
donation of $155 In cash as a starter
In the movement for the rescue and
preservation pf the boyj of Amarillo,
even while personally without sons.
Me was tiianked heartily for his
among the boys. They are to bo as
sisted by men of means and of moral' magnanimity and his deep concern
tone, they are to be aided by the in the character bulUlng for tiie fu-,
turo men of this city.
Then came the suggestion thnt a
lot he purchased and tuo 1,,U1J0 ten
dered by Mr. Sanborn be declined.
This sentiment grew with each suc
ceeding speaker and in almost lous
tlmo than is required to tell this part
of the story the leaso Idea was side
tracked and tho suggestion of a pur-
cua8e became a fixture n the general
scheme of absolute ownership. Quite
a number spoke t0 this phuse of the
issuo, all favoring it.
This was by no means disparaging
to tbe generous offer of Mr. San
born. The permanency of thB en
terprise, however, Instantly becamo
a ruling passion In the meeting and
eliminated entirely any suggestion of
a temporary arrangement, such as
was at first proposed. The workings
Incident to securing this plot of
ground will bo determined by tho executive-finance
committoe at a mect
lug to brt held this week.
The VarlouH Speakers,
Opened by Dr. Martin, the meeting
became ono In which many short
speeches were heard, all concise and
to the point, showing lntense Inter
est In the "boy question." Dr. Mc
Gee told of the evils of tobacco from
the standpoint of a medical man, and
the worth of personal example In im
pressing tho youth of the country
with the deudly work fit the weed,
both mentally and physically. The
aged physician expressed contempt
for a man who will bo guilty of a
vice and then sjhastlse his son .for
a similar wrong act.
Rev. T. L. Dyer, pastor of the
Congregational church, expressed his
hearty approval of the movement,
and as a teacher with more than a 1
score of years In the public schools, ;
gave hls testimony relative to the
evils of the tobacco habit, tolling of ,
Its paralyzing Influence unon the i
nerves and mental faculty of stu-
dents. Hn declared against minis
ters and teachers who are adieted
to the use of narcotic. i

- Rov. Jewell Howard, pastor of the

tees and pther business. He sees

ocally his approval of the move
ment for the betterment of tbe boys,

through to the successful Issue.

and was Instantly In line for buying
and making the proposed organiza
tion permanent.
Mrs. Stanford was enthusiastic
over the outlook and felt grateful to
Dr. Martin for coming here and
making this fight for the liberation
